Our Marilyn Monroe themed hotel room is one of our most popular rooms at Arthouse Hotel. A true 1950s icon, fans are still enamored today by Marilyn Monroe’s timeless beauty and charisma.
Monroe was a pinup icon and went on to become one of Hollywood’s most famous actresses. Long before the days of social media, the press were fixated on unraveling who she was and fans followed her every move.
But behind the scenes, Norma Jeane Mortenson was humble, shy and longed to start a family of her own. Though she’s best-remembered for her looks, Marilyn was also kind-hearted and politically engaged before her time.
So to celebrate the fascinating life of the world’s best-loved blonde bombshell, we’ve compiled a collection of our favourite ‘Marilyn moments’…
1) Marilyn loved to read literature
Marilyn Monroe owned an extensive library of literature and was an avid reader. Often photographed enjoying a good book, some of Monroe’s favourites included The Fall by Albert Camus and Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises.
2) Marilyn Monroe was just a stage name
Source: Wiki Commons
Marilyn’s real name was Norma Jaeane Mortenson, as documented on her birth certificate. Ben Lyon, Head of New Talent at Fox Studios helped a young and ambitious Norma Jeane to create a stage name.
Lyon told her “you are to me a Marilyn” in reference to Marilyn Miller, a woman who starred in musicals in New York. When it came to choosing a last name, Norma opted for her grandmother’s last name, Monroe. And the rest is history!
3) Monroe loved to wear Chanel No.5
If you’ve ever wondered what Marilyn Monroe’s scent of choice was, look no further than Chanel’s first and most timeless perfume. In an interview in 1952, Marilyn Monroe said that she wore “five drops of Chanel No. 5” and nothing else in bed. “I don’t want to say nude,” she said, “but it’s the truth.”
4) She married her first husband at 16
Before the bright lights of Hollywood swept up a young Norma Jean and Marilyn Monroe was born, James Dougherty married the pretty teenager when she was just 16.
“We decided to get married to prevent her from going back to a foster home,” Dougherty later said, “but we were in love. I never knew Marilyn Monroe, and I don’t claim to have any insights to her to this day,” Dougherty told United Press International in 1990. “I knew and loved Norma Jean.”
5) Marilyn was underpaid for her work
In comparison to her fellow leading ladies of the era, Marilyn Monroe was overworked and underpaid. Elizabeth Taylor was paid one million dollars for Cleopatra, while Monroe earned just $100,000 for Something’s Gotta Give. Jane Russell, Marilyn’s co-star in Gentleman Prefer Blondes was also paid over ten times the amount that Marilyn earned.
6) Marilyn married playwright Arthur Miller

In 1956, Marilyn married playwright, author and screenwriter, Arthur Miller. The turbulent relationship proved controversial once in the public eye and many speculated that Miller was simply using Marilyn as his muse.
Though their relationship ended in heartache, Miller went on to write:
“She was a whirling light to me then, all paradox and enticing mystery, street-tough one moment, then lifted by a lyrical and poetic sensitivity that few retain past early adolescence.”
7) Marilyn opposed segregation laws
In the 1950s, segregation laws were still very much in force. This meant American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald struggled to reach the audience she needed to really launch her career.
Marilyn used her platform to help Ella land gigs around Los Angeles, promising management that she would sit in the front row of Ella’s shows for a week!
8) Monroe was definitely a dog person
Throughout her life, Marilyn owned several dogs. As a child, she had a dog called Tippy, and her last four-legged friend was Maf, a Maletese terrier gifted to her by none other than Frank Sinatra!
9) She entertained army troops

In the February of 1954, thousands of troops gazed up at Marilyn Monroe, who illuminated the stage with ten shows during her visit to Korea. Ted Sherman, who served in the Navy during World War II and Korea, recalled: ‘The movie star was at her glamorous best when she performed ten USO shows in four days for U.S. soldiers, airmen, Marines and sailors during the Korean War in early 1954.”
“It was a great evening for all the homesick guys who were dazzled by the movie star’s performance. The sight and sounds of Marilyn singing “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” is a memory I still cherish.”
10) Marilyn married Joe DiMaggio

Marilyn Monroe and “Yankee Clipper” Joe DiMaggio shared a whirlwind romance, marrying in 1954 and splitting just nine months later. DiMaggio’s love for Monroe lasted far longer than their marriage survived. Remaining friends until the end, DiMaggio had roses delivered to Marilyn’s crypt three times a week for 20 years.
11) She was notorious for always being late
Nobody’s perfect…and when it came to time keeping, Marilyn’s was certainly an issue. The star was often known to be running late!
12) Marilyn was involved with the Kennedys
Source: Wiki Commons
Though the topic has been debated over the years, many believe that Marilyn Monroe had been romantically involved with both President John. F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy.
One of Marilyn’s biographers, James Spada told People magazine, “it was clear Marilyn had sexual relations with both Bobby and Jack. ”
13) Marilyn longed to have children
Sadly, Marilyn suffered several miscarriages during the life. But the star longed for children of her own. This was clear from the close relationships she maintained with her stepchildren from her marriages to Arthur Miller and Joe DiMaggio.
14) And she was very intelligent
Though the “blonde bombshell” stereotype seemed to coincide with being a “dumb blonde”, this was far from the case. Marilyn had an IQ of 168.
15) Hugh Hefner is buried next to her
Somewhat bizarrely, Playboy‘s founder Hugh Hefner bought the burial spot next to Marilyn Monroe in 1992. Starring on the cover of the first issue in 1953, Marilyn helped to shape Playboy into the publication that it became.
16) She struggled with her weight
Though her hourglass shape continues to inspire ladies to embrace their natural body shape, Marilyn’s weight fluctuated throughout her career. Her weight changed so dramatically during the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl that Beatrice Dawson, the costume designer for the film said: “I have two ulcers from this film, and they’re both monogrammed MM.”
17) Marilyn was close to Frank Sinatra
Hollywood duo Marilyn Monroe and crooning legend Frank Sinatra maintained a friendship over a number of years, with many stories detailing a close romance between the pair. Supposedly in 1961, Marilyn and Sinatra embarked on an intimate relationship, lasting several months.
James Kaplan’s account of their relationship claims that Sinatra asked Monroe to stay with him at his Lake Tahoe resort, in a final attempt to win over the actress and protect her from the darker sides to fame. It’s also thought that Sinatra expressed his desires to marry Marilyn, but she declined his proposal.
Following Marilyn’s death, Joe DiMaggio turned Sinatra away from her funeral. The former friends had become rivals, and many believe that Marilyn and Joe had rekindled their romance prior to her passing away.
18) She shared out her estate
Marilyn’s estate was valued at $1.6 million when she died in 1962. She left 75% of that estate to her acting coach, Lee Strasberg and 25% to her psychoanalyst, Dr. Marianne Kris. Marilyn also left a trust fun for her mother that was worth $5,000 a year.
19) Happy Birthday, Mr President
Need we say more? This iconic occasion saw Marilyn perform a breathy rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ for President John F Kennedy. Her controversial delivery and dazzling rhinestone dress sent the press into a frenzy!
Of course, this performance fuelled more rumours that Marilyn and JFK were having an affair. It was reported that Jack had told her he would leave his family, and Marilyn had said to her friend Jeanne Carmen, “Can’t you just see me as first lady?”.
20) Marilyn was a fan of yoga
Decades before doing yoga became an Instagram necessity, Monroe was a fan of doing yoga. She was taught by Bollywood film star Indra Devi, who also taught Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson.
21) She also enjoyed lifting weights!
Marilyn began to lift weights while she was on Catalina Island with her first husband. It’s said that she studied weightlifting with Howard Corrington, a former Olympic champion.
In 1952, Pageant magazine published a feature on Marilyn’s exercise routine and famous figure. Marilyn shared:
“I spend at least 10 minutes each morning working out with small weights. I have evolved my own exercises, for the muscles I wish to keep firm, and I know they are right for me because I can feel them putting the proper muscles into play as I exercise.”
22) Candle in the Wind is about Marilyn
Elton John’s 1973 hit Candle in the Wind was inspired by Marilyn, and even references her birth name, Norma Jeane. The song empathises with Marilyn’s struggles, particularly the way in which the press harrassed her.
23) Marilyn’s house had been bugged
Following Marilyn’s death, actress Veronica Hamel bought Monroe’s former home. Supposedly, when Hamel was renovating the house she found a system of wire-taps. It was later confirmed by PI Fred Otash that Marilyn’s house had been bugged by the FBI and CIA…scary stuff indeed!
24) Britney Spears has Marilyn’s jeans
The original pop princess was given Marilyn Monroe’s jeans from River of No Return by Tommy Hilfiger, who purchased them for $37,000!
25) Lastly, the ‘Marilyn Monroe Moment’….
Arguably the most famous ‘Marilyn Monroe Moment’ is this scene from The Seven Year Inch. The famous fluttering dress saw the phrase ‘Marilyn Monroe Moment’ become an iconic phrase through the decades!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our collection of the best Marilyn Monroe facts and moments from over the years. We’d love to have you come and stay in our Marilyn Monroe room at Arthouse Hotel.

The Greatest Showman has become a musical phenomenon. The infectious feel-good film dazzled the world with its catchy soundtrack and all star cast. Proving the critics wrong, the hit film topped the box office charts and has since made over $165 million in the US and over $217 million across the globe.
Liverpool now has its very own singing waiter diner, where you can be served American food and drink while enjoying hits from the movie and more musical favourites.
The Best of The Greatest Showman
To celebrate one of our favourite musicals, we thought we’d take a look at what makes The Greatest Showman so special…
It goes without saying that The Greatest Showman has a star-studded cast of actors, singers and dancers. The hit film is brought to life by A list favourites such as Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zac Efron.
The film has also introduced the world to spectacular talents including the fabulous Keala Settle, previously known for stealing the show on Broadway.
A Heartwarming Story
The Greatest Showman is inspired by the fascinating life of P.T. Barnum, the American showman famous for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Starting from humble beginnings, Barnum’s businesslike character and entrepreneurial spirit were evident from an early age.
The story showcases Barnum’s unlikely rise to success and many of the twists and turns along the way. An inspiring tale about following your dreams, it’s no surprise that the feel-good film struck a chord with its audience.
Celebrating Our Differences
Arguably the film’s most powerful theme is diversity. The Greatest Showman celebrates what makes us different and shines a light on our most unique qualities.
Though Barnum’s circus performers are dismissed as “freaks” by high-society, the uplifting musical sees them power through adversity and come out on the other side. What better way to lift your spirits?!
The Ultimate Feel-Good Soundtrack
The Greatest Showman’s toe-tapping soundtrack saw singalong cinema events sweep the nation, while the soundtrack itself spent over 10 weeks at Number 1 on the Official Album Charts in the UK.
The jam-packed album is one that we’re sure will stand the test of time. From power ballad ‘This is Me’ to the lively sounds of ‘The Greatest Show’.
Mulholland Bar & Restaurant
Mulholland is perfect for fans of The Greatest Showman. The UK’s first singing waiter diner brings the magic of Broadway and musical movies to Liverpool. Choose from classic American food and million-dollar milkshakes as you watch our showstopping singing waiters in action.
Our talented team perform a variety of dazzling hits from your favourite musicals, including The Greatest Showman, Disney classics and more. You’ll find yourself singing along or up on your feet in no time!
What better way to celebrate a special occasion or simply catch up with friends and make lasting memories?

The night saw fans of ITV2’s biggest show gather to put their Love Island knowledge to the test! And we certainly threw in some fabulous prizes along the way.
Love Island Liverpool Quiz
Roger and Katie put fans through their paces with a variety of quiz rounds. Love Island winner Cara De La Hoyde and fellow Islanders of the past Gabby, Georgia and Tyne-Lexy stayed at Signature Living’s Shankly Hotel just a few weeks ago. And during their stay, we filmed some exclusive videos for our video quiz round.
Roger Jonas and Katie Salmon
We also served up a colourful range of refreshing Love Island cocktails. Our eclectic menu featured the Do Bits Society, Megan the Snake and My Type on Paper. What more could a Love Island fan want?!
Our colourful creations went down a treat with our quiz guests. Poured to perfection by our cocktail experts, Arthouse Hotel’s Mulholland Bar is one of the best spots for cocktails in Liverpool.
We spread the summer vibe around Arthouse with plenty of decorations brightening up the bar. Even our famous gorilla sported some summer attire! Quiz attendees enjoyed our range of cocktails and indulged in delicious pizzas.
Love Island’s Katie Salmon was joined by her girl group including Instagram star and model Chloe Khan.
Of course, we couldn’t let our Love Island quiz-goers miss an episode! In between the fun, we showcased the latest antics of the villa on our big screen.

Our Favourite Summer Movies
To get you in the spirit for a summer stay in Liverpool, we thought we’d celebrate the season with some of the best summer movies of all time.
Roman Holiday (1953)
A charming tale of summer romance, Roman Holiday had to be on our list. Starring the timeless Audrey Hepburn opposite Gregory Peck, the romantic classic saw Audrey win an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.
The Seven Year Itch (1955)
Starring the one and only Marilyn Monroe, The Seven year Itch is another of our favourites. The dazzling Hollywood classic brought audiences the iconic scene of Monroe standing on the subway grate in her famous white dress.
To Catch a Thief (1955)
A sun-kissed Hitchock classic, To Catch a Thief stars the one and only Grace Kelly opposite the iconic Cary Grant. The alluring thriller takes audiences on a journey of suspense and romance with the glamorous backdrop of the French Riviera.
Stand By Me (1986)
A coming-of-age comedy by Rob Reiner, Stand By Me brings Stephen King’s novella The Body to life. The heartwarming film is a summer classic. Following the friendship of four boys from a small town in Oregon, viewers are brought along on an unforgettable hike in search of a dead body.
The Parent Trap (1998)
Starring Lindsay Lohan (opposite Lindsay Lohan!) The Parent Trap is a family favourite when it comes to childhood summer movies. The feel-good film features everything a summer film should do, from summer camp chaos to lakeside mischief. Not forgetting, there’s a fantastic use of Beatles hit ‘Here Comes the Sun’.
It goes without saying that Grease is on our list of the best summer movies ever made! The musical comedy starts with summer dreams ripped at the scenes as the holiday romance of Danny and Sandy comes to an end. And though heading back to school is usually a bit of a downer, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John keep the fun alive alongside an all-singing and all-dancing cast.
Last but certainly not least, our list of summer movies wouldn’t be complete without Steven Spielberg’s iconic thriller, Jaws. Shot along the sandy shores of Martha’s Vineyard, the must-see summer blockbuster of 1975 became the highest-grossing film of all time until the release of Star Wars. Arguably the best bit of all, the spine tingling score compromises of just two alternating notes.
